Daniel Taub reveals that each character featured in a soap opera has some secret. People of his stature rarely mention such a statement as the director of the Foreign Ministry’s general law division.
However, it is already out, and it will be no more considered a secret. Taub featured in the international media as a government spokesman besides being in charge of the Israeli delegation to The Hague for hearing of a case on the separation of a fence at the International Court of Justice. He is a guy that wears many huts because he writes television soap operas as well.
More significant is the fact that Daniel Taub wrote most of the plotlines as well as the scripts for a popular Israeli soap opera called “Rebbe’s Court”.
Also, he introduced great ideas to be incorporated in the series as he served as part of the technical team leading the development of unique ideas for content TV channel for the Jewish people. The program was called Tchelet.
Daniel confesses that he had never watched a full episode of a soap opera in his entire life even though he had great ideas that would improve the world of soap opera.

He would then begin writing some 26 episodes that marked a profound success for the Tchelet. Learn more about Daniel Taub: https://www.jnf.co.uk/2015/07/jnf-uk-bids-farewell-ambassador-daniel-taub/

When he started, he would keep a low profile on his involvement at the ministry, and people began watching as well as getting hooked on it. Surprisingly, the situation improved his standing at the department and among the legal community.
The articulate, native English-speaker is proud of his fans who rejoice when seeing him defending Israel’s positions on various news channels as the government spokesman.
